Where to go in August

For some, August is all about beach holidays. But if you’re looking for a little more action than a fly-and-flop break, where’s best to visit in August? Our team are a well-travelled bunch, so we asked them to share their picks for August’s top destinations. From volcanoes and glaciers to fjords and festivals, there’s plenty to inspire your next adventure. Read on to find out their recommendations for where to go in August…

Our pick: the best places to visit in August

1. Norway

Make the most of the Scandinavian summer with a cruise along Norway’s jagged coastline. Not only is August one of the warmest weather months here (ideal for exploring quaint coastal towns and admiring fjord scenery up on deck), but days are long and light, too.

2. Iceland

August sees temperatures peak in Iceland – expect the mercury to hit the high teens (and even the 20s if it’s a heatwave!). Coupled with the long hours of daylight, it makes it a fantastic time of year to tour the Land of Fire and Ice.

3. Switzerland

Soaring mountains cloaked in lush green meadows. Alpine lakes sparkling in the sunshine. Views of snow-tipped peaks set against clear blue skies. There’s nothing quite like summer in Switzerland. Our rail-focused holiday here gives you the chance to take in the photo-worthy scenery from the windows of the famous Bernina and Glacier express trains.

4. Eastern Canada

Summer in eastern Canada is all about the great outdoors. Niagara Falls, Lake Ontario, Thousand Islands, the Charlevoix Coastline – there are plenty of places to enjoy the region’s natural beauty. Our tour combines them with time in the cities, where you can join locals soaking up the sun at pavement cafés and pop-up markets.

5. Bavaria & the Danube

Oberammergau’s famous Passion Play (a once-a-decade series of performances now in its 42nd season) runs throughout the summer. While we include tickets on a number of tour itineraries, there’s only one chance to combine it with a Danube river cruise – it departs 2 August and arrives in Bavaria in time for the 4 August performance.
